MERION REFUSES TO WARN
THE ENTERPRISING BURGLAR
Eejects Suggestion of Public Notice
That Detectives Guard the Town.
Merlon will tnke no action to save
trouble for burglars. Tho township
Commissioners have refused to harbor
suggestion of the Merlon Civic Asso
ciation that tho town be placarded with
notices setting forth It Is under tho pro
tection of Burns' detectives. This fact
li to be kept a secret. Burglars who
do not read of It In tho newspapers wilt
have to go to Merlon and And out, If
they want to know.
The reason given for the refusal is
that such placards would be a reflection
on the Commissioners, the police force,
exposed somo time ago by the detec
tives, nnd the townsrilp. It was brought
out ut a meeting held last night that
the atory of the policemen sleeping In
railroad stations between parties pre
pared for them by admiring cooks had
Cone as far as Cincinnati.
William II. Barker, one of tho Com
missioners, received a telegram from a
friend In that city quoting a headline
from a newspaper there that told of
the sleeping bluecoats. The suggestion
of placards was made by Edward W.
Bok, president of tho CivJc Association.
He wanted to put up signs at tho four
entrances of Merlon, saying:
"The entire community of Merion is
under tho protection of tho Burns De
tective Agency, night and day."
It was explained by J. C. McKeon and
Clarke Dubbell, members of t'ne asso
ciation, that the detectives would merely
supplement the work of tho township
policemen, who no longer sleep on duty,
neither do they attend parties given by
cooks. In spite of this tho Commis
sioners refused to entertain the plan.
EX-PRESIDENT TAFT FAVORS
ONE TERM OF SEVEN YEARS
longer Tenure, He Said, "Would Give
Executive Greater Courage.
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Jan. 23.
Former President Taft emphasized in an
address last night at the University of
Virginia his belief in the one-term Idea
applied to the office of President of
the United States.
"I am strongly Inclined to the view,"
be said, "that It would have been a wiser
L Provision, as it was at ono time voted In
xn convention, to make the term or tne
President seven years and render hra In
. "Such a change would give to the Ex
ecutive greater courage and Independence
In the discharge of his duties. The ab
sorbing and diverting Interest In the re
election of tho Incumbent, taken by thoso
Federal civil servants who regard their
ewrt tenure as dependent upon his, would
disappear, and the efficiency of adminis
tration in tho last 18 months of a term
would be maintained."
Mr. Taft was speaking at the opening
of a series of three lectures on the Barbour-Page

ONE-STEP PROMENADE HAS
RHYTHMIC RUSSIAN SWING
This article Is the sixth of an illustrated scries on Anna Pavlowa's New
Social-Dances and flow to Perform Them, which appear Tuesdays and
Thursdays exclusively in the Kvkning I,i:doi:ii. 'These articles have been
written by Mile. Pavlowa, who, as premtoe ballerina assoluta of the St.
Petersburg Imperial Opera, is everywhere recognised as not only the greatest
living dancer, but the greatest living authority an the art of the dance. The
photographs icere posed by Mile. Pavlowa and her partner, Ivan Clustinc
(maltrc dc ballet of the Imperial Opera Houses in Petrograd and Moscoio and
at the Paris Oiand Opera), regarded as Europe's foremost masculine social-dancer.
By ANNA PAVLOWA
The sixth figure In my standardized
one-step, which I term tho promenade,
is typically Russian. It has Ingratiating
features that lit perfectly Into tho
rhythm of tho music nnd makes an ex
cellent concluding division to n dance
that, as I seo It, now has an artistic
merit which a3 formerly danced It lacked.
"When tho dancers finish tho fifth figure
In my version of tho one-step they are
moving (or rather they hae moved) in
a direction exactly opposite to that they
originally took. Tho lady finishes tho
fifth figure, called the forward eUdji.Bhe

right, supports himself on his light foot,
which Is In advance of his left, and holds
with his left hand tho right hand of his
Beginning the promenade, the lady on
tho count of "one" turns to her right on
the ball of her left foot and takes tho
Bhortest possible step with tho right foot.
As she stnrts this evolution she with
draws her right hand fiom the left of her
partner, whose part In the promenade Is

In my pose, the left being up and to the
left at full length so that the tips of the
fingers are on a line with the top of the
head, tho right arm being carried back
and downward to a point about level with
the waist. By turning tho head to the left
end slightly dropping it backward, a most
graceful lino Is established.
Meanwhile, the cavalier steps forward
on tho count of "one' with a fairly long
step, one about 10 Inches in length, drop
ping his lady's right hand with his left
nnd gauging his step bo that It carries
him to his left and finishes with a quarter
whirl on the ball of the foot that enables
the next step (which Is quite short) taken
on count "two' to bring the cavalier In a
position In which ho faces a direction op

as much as possible to his right.
Close together, now, the promenade be

each dancer on tho left foot, lifting foot

Inspection Day in the Gele-
of Furniture at Wanarnaker's
Also a day to reflect; and when you reflect upon it you will see that these furniture
sales could not have been built upon any but constructive principles.
That means the building up of quality and the keeping down of price.
Put these statements to the test tomorrow, the second Inspection Day in this
The proof is here. It is here, for instance, in the shape of 25 carloads of bedroom
furniture at 33 1-3 to 40 per cent, below the actual value.
By which we mean 33 1-3 to 40 per cent, below the
price which it has for years brought on our own floors.
Now the price tags on this furniture have no
advantage over those you will see on a whole lot of
other furniture in "sales" and out of "sales."
But look at the inside!
I Notice every drawer varnished inside as well as
outside. Notice the dust-proof partitions between the
drawers, the good brass hardware, the bureau-back, all
in one piece and set in flush with the sides.
See the double-fastening of the mirrors, the reg
ular patent fastener reinforced by a firm back brace.
Notice also that every one of these mahogany pieces
has a mahogany interior and that all the larger drawers
have extra reinforcement.
The furniture at half price is amongst the best in the sale.
There are many carloads of it, but still not enough, considering that it is as well made,
as handsomely designed furniture as we have ever shown, and, of course, it is bound to get
There isn't a home that aspires to permanency and fineness for which this sale does
not provide furniture as no other sale has ever provided.
Indeed, the sale is so big that it takes more than a day to get a proper survey and
grasp of the stocks. .
"How many bureaus can you count in that little corner?" one of our furnjture experts
said to us last evening. Roughly, we counted up 300. "We have the matching pieces for all
these to make complete bedroom suits to sell at 4 to 1-3 below their actual value, and these,"
said he, "make only one item of our assortment of medium-priced bedroom furniture."
The world's finest cabinet work is here. &"& '
Among the very fine furniture' you will see the most beautiful pieces and suits that
have ever been on these floors rare and exquisitely designed Elizabethan, Georgian, Adam
and Sheraton types, a delight to the eye on the outside and inside, a marvel of fine
workmanship and improvements in detail.
We have had many of these finer things hand decorated by our own artist here in
the store, Customers can have any piece or suit decorated to order in a design of their own
ChOOSing. (Fifth and Sixth Floors)
Selections of Furniture
may be made today, to
morrow or Saturday, in
advance of the Sale, and
orders given for it at
